Maziar Jaan,
Yes, it was Mr. Koohzadi. A nice guy.

You are younger than me. Those were the good days, though.

Maziar Jaan,
I was at Manoochehri. Not a great school, I know. My father didn't know much about Ahvaz, so he took me to Manoochehri. It was from 1966 to 1970. I also lived there as a college student from 1972 to 1976. Then as a college teacher from 1978 to 1982 when I left for good.

FYI Ahvaz is my second hometown, if I may call it that, and the blog is factual. Many live in Asiaabaad, Hasiraabaad, Khazalieh, Lashkaaabaad, Kampolo and other suburban areas of the city.I went to school with many of them and many were my friends. In junior high I helped some with their studies and was always rewarded with their mothers' kind words in Arabic(some could not speak Persian because they had never been to school and as kids lived in neighborhoods where Persian was not spoken)and kisses on top of my head. I have fond memories of those years.

Thanks Simorgh for the post.

Mr. Rahmanian
Which year and school was that?
Damet garm Hamshahri.
Kaash Iran could adopt similar laws like USA where Alaskans are entitled to profit sharing from drillings on their lands.

I didn't know that, I'm an Ahwazi!!!! I grew up there and hardly saw an Arab in the city. Basically, they lived by the border of Iraq, not in the city of Ahwaz.
Long live the land of Aryan from China all the way to the center of Europe.

It is a known fact that Iranian Arabs are routinely discriminated and subjected to racism on a daily basis. The Terrorist Regime is screwing over the Arab minority demishing houses, discriminating against them for being Sunni Muslims, preventing them from celebrating in public Sunni muslim festivals, preventing the use of ful Arabic names and surnames and banning the open celebration. All the things it accuses Israel of doing in the West Bank and Jerusalem. The only difference is that the IR Terrorist Regime can get away with it while the so-called humanitarian Palestinian loving Iranians don't say JACK SHIT.Why? Because the persecutors are not Jewish. The stupid stupid stupid Iranian Left.

Simorgh thanks for this timely blog. Of course I agree with everything in here, except your last sentence. It is actually historically and factually incorrect. You could check the archives on many Iranian Leftist sites and most of them for the past 34 years have been defending the rights of Iranian- Arab minority inside Islamic Republic of Hell. Good the see you back, cheers.
